Since Martin Luther King Jr. was remembered and celebrated in January, we read a book titled, The Crayon Box That Talked. We read the book and compare/contrasted to a similar poem (click here for sample). Then each child illustrated a crayon to show how each one is unique. We then displayed them in a "classroom crayon box." I like doing this for MLK day, but the same project can be used in the beginning of the year to show how each child is different, but together we make a great team!
